Thumbs up New Guy (5 Series)

Hey forum. I've owned a Mercedes, a Volvo, and a bunch of other cars. My most recent daily driver was a 4runner (that I kept to haul the boat in the summers).

Last week I bought a 2012 528i with all the bells and whistles. It was a CPO with 9,000 miles. I got one hell of a deal on it and couldn't pass it up.

This is my first BMW. I love it so far.

This is a great forum and I have already learned a great deal on here.

Welcome and congrats! Post pictures and at least give us some deets on color, options, sport or m-sport, etc. That 4-banger does well!

Dude, I think I saw you. On Tuesday, I pulled out of UTMB onto Broadway next to a guy in a new Mojave 528i. Was that you?

Looks nice. Mojave was my first color choice, but for some reason BMW doesn't think it belongs on an MSport.
